Antique Brass
Gives a quiet, aged look to the doorbell. Color variation and mottling in the finish are normal and add character and beauty to any doorbell.

Doorbells 1608 and 1611 are our only doorbells available in Antique Copper as well as Oil Rubbed Bronze. Our doorbells have a finish that will accept the gradual ageing and weathering of the outdoor elements.

Lighting Information

All dimensions are in Imperial measure and include shades shown. If you select a shade other than that shown, the overall dimensions may change. The standard length is the range of length included in the base price. If you would like your fixture longer than the standard length, let us know. It’s likely not a problem but there may be an extra charge. If you are unsure about the dimensions of a fixture please contact us as it is important to know that the fixture will fit before you get it.

Special Requirements

You may have special requirements such as: a sloping ceiling, extra length, or a custom shade choice. Please contact us with the fixture model and your special requirement before placing your order.


Polished Brass is solid brass that has been polished. There is no coating on the brass, so expect it to gradually tarnish. Most people agree that the appearance of the fixture is improved as it takes on a richer more golden hue with time.
Hint – after installation, wipe off fingerprints with soft paper or cloth.

Lacquered Polished Brass finish is the same as above. However, the final product has a clear coat of lacquer to prevent the brass from aging over time.

Antique Brass and Antique Copper finishes give a quiet, aged look to a fixture. Color variation and mottling in the finish are normal and add character and beauty to the light fixture. These finishes should be considered permanent for inside applications. Fixtures intended to be used outside have a finish that will accept the gradual ageing and weathering of the outdoor elements.

Polished Nickel is a heavy nickel plate on top of solid brass. This finish is extremely durable and almost maintenance free. This is a very popular choice of finish for bathroom and kitchen fixtures. It will match very well with chrome plated fittings.

Brushed Nickel is gently brushed polished nickel over brass.

Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is a darkened treatment applied to replicate aged bronze. The finish is quite dark with slight variations of colour. Many Oil Rubbed Bronze finishes differ from source to source in the industry. If you have any questions regarding this finish or expectations please feel free to communicate these during the ordering stage.

Black Matte is a satin black treatment applied to a sandblasted surface for a lasting finish. This finish is not only durable and long lasting but the finished product has a dignified air to it.

Bronze Black is a lovley combination of a Bronze finish and Black Matte finish.

Antique Brass Paint Finish has a antique brown finish with brass highlights and satin lacquer finish.


All of our fixtures are designed to use type “A” incandescent bulbs ­ these are the regular bulbs commonly found at most stores. These bulbs seem to offer the best combination of light quality, convenience and reliability. On the down side they generate quite a bit of heat so it is important not to exceed the recommended maximum wattage. Of course you can always safely use a lower wattage bulb to achieve a softer lighting affect. For your safety make sure to follow the maximum wattage requirements for your fixture.
